The 13th annual Ribbon of Hope Luncheon today featured breast cancer survivor Christine Clifford, president and CEO of Christine Clifford Enterprises, as well as ABC 22/FOX 45 Anchor Deborah Linz, who was the event's emcee.
Proceeds from the luncheon benefit the Kettering Medical Center Foundation's Women's Wellness Fund.
Christine Clifford definitely cracked "the glass ceiling." By 40, she was Senior Executive Vice President for The SPAR Group, an international merchandising and information services firm in New York. Her accounts included Kmart, Toys 'R' Us, Wal-Mart, AT&T, Mattel Toys, and Revlon. Taking her company from a million dollar per year loss to over $54 million in sales, Christine signed the largest contract in the industry's history with Procter & Gamble, doubling the size of her company overnight.
Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994, Christine wrote eight award-winning, humorous portrayals of her story. She also began her own company, The Cancer Club, which is the world's largest producer of humorous and helpful products for people with cancer.
The luncheon also featured health and wellness exhibits and boutique vendors.
